I wanted to share with everyone my favorite post workout smoothie. I make it a point to have one of these smoothies everyday – even on my rest days. Each person’s body is different along with their goals. If you want something with less fat, I recommend using one tablespoon rather than two.
Another variation is to use unsweetened coconut water instead of unsweetened almond milk. Sometimes, I add a ¼ cup of pineapple too. Normally, I use the Raw Protein cacao flavor.
This morning, I tried out Raw Protein’s new flavor Yerba Mate. It had more of a chocolate flavor. I thought it tasted really good!
All these variations taste amazing. At any rate, here is my post workout meal:
1 c. unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp. chia or flax
1 scoop protein powder
2 tbsp. peanut butter
1 frozen banana
2 handfuls of spinach
First, I start with the almond milk. I then add the chia or flax, protein powder and peanut butter. Following that, I add the spinach and top it off with the banana and three ice cubes. Blend until smooth.
